Don Ranieri's Hit List, The Guardian sports critics who predicted relegation List:
Since Lolverpool last won a Premier League title, Peter Schmeichel has signed for Manchester United, won it 5 times, and had a son who is now on course to win it with Leicester City.
>the shanty town of liverpool
>being proud of having an owner
And who said I was proud that a Thai owns Leicester?
Nevertheless he has invested a great deal in Leicester and can be credited with their success
idk their owners seem pretty chill
Plus they fly out monks to bless the team, which is amusing.
If Manchester City and Chelsea weren't brought by suggar-daddies the BPL would be Utdwinslol to this day.
Oil money saved the English league.
I'm shocked Drinkwater isn't being considered, he would be great with Vardy.
Living god Claudio 'Don' Ranieri has said things about how he does it.
“Tuesday is hard training, Wednesday absolute rest. Thursday another hard workout, Friday is preparation for the match, Saturday another game. I make sure the players have at least two days off from football each week. This is the pact I made with the players on the first day: I trust you. I'll explain a little football ideas every now and them, as long as you give me everything.”
It appears that Ranieri’s relaxed approach even stretches to the training ground canteen, even though his introduction was a shock.
“Sometimes we sit at the dinner table and I am frightened at how much they eat. I’ve never seen players so hungry! The first few times I was surprised, then I learned to smile. If they run this hard, they can eat what they like,” he said.
“In England they are aware they’re young, healthy and in a great job. It would be stupid to waste all that. When they train, they always put the same effort as a match. I never once had to tell someone off for being lazy.”
“They so need to be relaxed and not harassed. They expect calm and respect in the dressing room, so if you want to be a prima donna, they won’t forgive you for it," he said.
“I always tell my players to find the fire within themselves. A chance like this will never come round again. Seek that fire, don’t be ashamed of it. And they are not ashamed, if anything they demand to dream.”
So can Leicester win the title? “I don’t know, but it’s fantastic that we’ve earned the question. When I arrived the chairman asked me for 24 points by Christmas – we got 37 or 39, I can’t remember how many. And we are still up there now.
“In an era when money counts for everything, I think we give hope to everybody.”
Also, do the foxes have the most likeable squad in all of England?
>doing goofy shit
>not afraid to do unorthodox teambuilding
>two of this season's shooting stars
>always celebrate with each other
>no real superstars
>not afraid to interact with their fans
>great on social media
>real human beans
Seriously, how can anyone not love them?
Before they installed lights onto that roundabout it was horrible to get into and out of during rush hour. You basically just had to hope you weren't going to crash into someone when you drove in.
Would be a good place for a Mahrez statue desu.
Literally failed my driving test at that fucking roundabout.
They have these weird things on the road leading up to it, they are like models of small children which are slightly reflective and everytime I drive down that road I see it and think to myself "fuck hell that kid is a bit close to the edge of the road and why are they even outside at 2 in the morning" before realising what they are. So I guess they technically work.
I wasn't taken there on mine since there was loads of construction work going on there, spent most of my test driving up and down Welford road.
Also that library used to have some specially made curved glass for the windows but the chavs smashed it up so they replaced with those standard square panes. Shame because it used to look cool.
>Taking driving test in Wigston / Glen Parva
>Not going to Hinckley
It's like you wanted to fail.
>chavs smashed it up
Yes, that sounds like the Eyres Monsell/Saffron Lane border.
EME escapee here.
When that place opened up it was great, coud finally stop eating the oil laden shit at my school and get stuff from there. Some guy at school got cuaght trying to steal from there in the first week it opened though and they tried that whole "only letting two schoolkids in at one time" rule until they gave up.
It was also the first place I saw with those self service checkouts.
>Eyres Monsell/Saffron Lane
That was like 80% of the catchment area for my GCSE and sixth form.
Charlie is right.
Ranieri is lucky he gets to step into a team built by Nigel Pearson, even I could have coached Leicester to a Premier League win with all the talent on that team.
bringing in the feels
The players he has at his disposal do not harmonize with the way he wants to play. Moyes didn't build a cadre that could sustain Klopp's preferred high-pressing game.
And when he tries to get them to play that style he gets an almost comical amount of injuries.
Still, his performance has been very underwhelming and now he makes all scousers look like idiots for making him their new messiah.
cant believe we're going to do it lads, seems like just yesterday my dad was taking me to go watch the boys at the old stadium on little sparrow lane, didnt have the stars back then but players like big jim and pinky instilled the mateship in the team that you see today. You wont see the boys having a pint at the hobbled cobbler inn after the game anymore but theyre still the same team to me
Just a friendly reminded that Azzar won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award with 8 assists and 14 tap-ins
>inb4 b-b-but those statistics don't show the quality of his performances
>look up Leicester
>this is it
Jesus fuck England, how haven't all of you just killed yourselves from severe depression already
>look up Leicester soccer stadium
>this monstrosity is literally directly across the street
>implying Leicestites give a fuck about some power station when they are graced in the presence of the KP.
You just don't understand the heart of the Leicestershire people, anon. We are a underdog city, with an underdog mentality.
it's a beautiful city
Holy shit this picture flatters us.
The city centre is honestly a multicultural mess mixed with chavs and retail workers. Nobody with a brain actually bothers to go to the centre now.
Proper Leicester fans are all from Leicestershire, look up Thornton, Foxton, Oadby, Charnwood and Bosworth mate. Coalville and Hinckley are inbred towns.
Ok this a more honest picture on a nice day which I didn't want to use... for obvious reasons. I'm still happy with where I grew up.
Please don't chat shit on behalf of Leicester pal.
Possibly, They all seems to know Leicester because of Shinji. Even the women which was surprising .
I've gotten support from Japanese, Canadians, Irish, Welsh, Australians a few Europeans. Leicester world hype confirmed.
Wakey wakey, /chat/! Now only 5 sleeps remaining until /arse/ get BTFO
>yfw Vardy, Drinkwater, and Albrighton win the league and they hand you the EPL owl trophy in front of Chelsea
>yfw they win the Euros by drubbing Greece
>yfw you have trained them well

Thierry Henry, speaking as part of his punditry role on Sky Sports, said: “If I had said to you that Chelsea would struggle, Manchester City would struggle, you would have thought that it would be a season that Arsenal would walk away with it easily. And it’s not happening.
“I would question also the mentality of it. The game against Chelsea, they didn’t score. Those are the sort of games you need to win.
“They need three points. It is business. You don’t win the league for a very long time. Can you win it? It’s time to wake up and do it!
“For me at the moment, Leicester are the team to win it. They’re not only showing they can win it, they’re showing they can cope with the pressure.”
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has defended his side’s ‘nerve’ following the routine victory over Eddie Howe’s men on the South Coast.
“We have been in the title race and we are still in it,” the Frenchman said. “I agree Leicester now is the favourite. In one week they have beaten Liverpool and Manchester City.
“That makes our game on Sunday a very big one. We just have to control our performances and show that we believe. We have enough quality and nerve to deal with that.”
Some Leicester lads just got back from a trip to VFL Bochum.
>Liverpool playing 210 minutes of football just to be knocked out.
I had a nice chat witha few of them.
lend us your meme magic again please
>mfw the bochum and lestah friendship started in 2012/13
>Kitsune with boobs
I didnt expected it will be this good, thanks based Japs
Game looks awesome tbf, I havn't been, but did meet some of the Bochum fans when they last came to Leicester.
Come over next time.
